Geez you fellas have got me thinking....that can get scary at times !
Has ANYONE thought about using throttle bodies off big Jap motor bikes and adapting them !?? :lol:
Seriously...accidentally found a site with bloke muckin' about with 35mm throttle bodies off a Kwacka......they are 35mm bodies and figured that 35 x 8 is a s**t load bigger than anything using a single.
Would be some muckin' about but the end result maybe worth it as the cost for a DIY d***head like me might make it viable......well......maybe :shock:

could be done but would require a custom manifold to mount them too

take 8 tb from a late model gixxer 1000 and you would fuel rails and 2 injecotrs per tb as well :)

no idea on how the injectors would go on the falc ecu

CAPA?

Yella Terra maybe.
To use the dual TB, you need the new plenum cover too, you won't get change (or it itself) from $2k.

So buy the genuine Ford one.

The ford one is a smaller plenum and the flow is not as good as the yella terra one, so i will put up with a logo if it will do a better job . :idea: could put my own badge or something over the top :)
